SOHH asks two players to name their Top 5 rappers of all-time, then pits their lists head-to-head to see whose hip-hop picks reign supreme. To make things tricky, we’ve created a “Hall of Fame” of emcees (see right) who are universally respected and therefore may not be mentioned by either player.
[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name their Top 5 rappers of all-time. To make things tricky, we've created a "Hall of Fame" of emcees (see right) who are universally respected and therefore may not be mentioned. After Chase N. Cashe unloaded his top choices, Grammy-winning production duo Tha Bizness reveals their fave five.]
UGK. We definitely gotta put them in there. Bun B and Pimp C definitely have to be in there.
Snoop Dogg. Snoop has to be in there because he’s got longevity in the game. He keeps going. He keeps on re-inventing himself.
Drake. He’s done more in the past five years than a lot of others. That’s the homie right there. To be able to see him on the top, he’s one of the biggest artists out right now.
Mac Dre. We definitely have to put Mac Dre in there. This all isn’t in any particular order. He’s in there. Dre’s done influenced everything. Everything that’s going on in the music right now, that’s what Dre’s been doing. If Dre wouldn’t had got killed when he did, he probably would have been one of the biggest rappers ever. He’s definitely gotta get his little shine on there.
Kanye West. We can put him in there. He’s been so influential in the last ten years and how he’s impacted the game from all aspects to what he’s brought to it.
